I've been on a crazy Durutti Column kick lately, been listening to almost nothng but them and Morrissey's "Viva Hate" album, which is of course driven by Vini and Stephen Street's arrangements (it's great to hear Vini rock out a bit, as much as he would hate anyone ever saying that). Wikipedia also has a surprising list of projects where Vini is sideman to various people; I'm about to start tracking down some of these just to hear me some new Vini.

"Reilly arranged music and played guitar on fellow Manchester artist Morrissey's debut album Viva Hate in 1988. Reilly has also recorded with artists including John Cooper Clarke, Pauline Murray, Anne Clark, The Wake, Richard Jobson, Quando Quango, Craig Davies, Swing Out Sister and Holly Johnson."

Also a big plus is that DC fans, like Oregon/Ralph Towner fans, tend to have some serious audiophile tendencies: every live bootleg I've heard of them is exquisite.
